Club Notes - 27th November

Jack the Joker
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnie’s Bar where the jackpot is €3200 as on Sunday night Mickey Organ  was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 1 which when turned was not the joker, but he did win €50. Kurt Shrubb and Eileen O'Donovan won €25 each.

Under 19 Hurling
Our Under 19 hurlers will take on Saint Carthages in the Western Final this Sunday in the Gold Coast at 2pm.

Our Club AGM will take place this Friday night at 8pm in Abbeyside School hall, where all are most welcome to attend

Club Bingo
Our club bingo continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night where the jackpot is €700.

On behalf of all in the club, we would like to offer our deepest sympathies to the O'Connor family, Limerick and Abbeyside on the tragic death of Breffni O'Connor in Italy on Saturday morning last. The O’Connor family have been great servants of our club for many years and Breffni's cousins continue to play for our club today. Breffni's father, Liam regularly travels back to the Village to watch our club teams in championship action and has always been a great supporter of every and any fundraising initiative we have undertaken. Indeed, Liam was a chief organiser of the very successful and enjoyable sponsored cycle from Limerick to Abbeyside a few years ago. When our Féile teams travelled to Limerick in recent years or whenever our Senior teams travelled to Limerick for challenge games, Liam would ensure that all the arrangements were in place and the teams never wanted for anything once Liam undertook the arrangements. Once again we send our condolences to Liam and Kathleen and their family at this most difficult time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sí.

Club History
Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club was formed in 1967 as a result of the amalgamation of Abbeyside Hurling and Football Clubs and Ballinacourty Football Club. It is situated within the Parish of Abbeyside, Ballinroad and Garranbane. Located on the eastern side of the River Colligan, it forms the northern and eastern shorelines of Dungarvan Harbour from Abbeyside Church to Ballinacourty Lighthouse
Development Fund
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club has been growing at a dramatic pace over the past 10 years with the population of our parish increasing rapidly. We must ensure that we have the best facilities for all our players. We want to ensure that the next generation have the facilities that they need and deserve. We are asking supporters and friends to support this project over the next five years.
Strategic Plan
Past generations have had their visions for the future of our club. These are our current aims and with these achieved we hope to hand on the club to future generations in the same healthy state it was passed onto us.
